I go in 2 weekends a month usually to see my parents, which is an hour & half drive. My aunt suggested them to come and see me a few weekends ago since I always drive over there. My mom said, Well I don't know what that was all about! Then, my dad had a week off from work this past week and they wouldn't come to see me "because they wanted to go to church while he was off". I feel like I have no support when it comes to my parents, my aunt and uncle drive 4hrs away every other weekend to see their children and grandchildren and my parents won't give up 1 day to come in see us because their going to church. I agree with attending church, but they can't even take out the time to come see us really bothers me, when I come over every other weekend to see them... I kind of feel like their being selfish.Answer Question

I agree with the others, there is no reason why YOU have to be the only one traveling to visit! The roadways do go both ways- meaning it would not kill them to visit you once in a while. Do they ever have a reason why they can't drive to your house? I would stop going there until they compromise and agree to do some of the traveling. Also - I would not go every weekend, I would go maybe once a month or so-- when it is convenient for me.
